Really really really nice edition,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Complete Tales and Poems of Edgar Allan Poe, The (Barnes & Noble Leatherbound Classic Collection) (Hardcover)
I bought this after getting disappointed from the quality of Complete Edgar Allan Poe (Wordsworth Library Collection)
Complete Tales and Poems of Edgar Allan Poe, The (Barnes & Noble Leatherbound Classics) is a completely different animal...
The leather binding looks and feels awesome.
The pages are a nice white with smallish fonts and are comfortably usable, but I would liked them a bit thicker. The silver color on the page edges is sprayed on and looks patchy. When you first open the book the page edges are a bit glued together because of the silver paint. They easily break apart after flipping them once or twice and there are no obvious paint smudges on the face of the paper.
In general the silver edges are a bit too much for my taste.
About the contents, all of Poe' s most popular work is in here. I do not know all of his rare or semi-rare writings, but all I have ever read/heard and then a lot more is in here.
I will definitely recommend this to all my horror reading friends...
